It also comes from knowing that everyone learns at their own pace, and that everyone can learn any concept, if given the proper opportunity. Reliability reflects my ability to let my students know they can count on me to help them advance in their studies. It also reflects my ...

"My experience working and teaching students in other countries and cities has only serve to further my belief that there is no one 'right' model, yet more individualized instruction most often yields the greatest success. Learning is comprised of many components and how we teach our children should be regularly assessed to fit the needs of an evolving society. I have experience teaching and tutoring students with Special Needs, English Language Learners and Gifted and Talented children. Yet regardless of however a child is 'labeled' I believe all children, with the right amount of motivation and interest, can be given tools that will ...

"As a REACH Mentor at Regis High School and an Activity Head at Brewster Day Camp, I’ve learned that listening is just as important in being a good teacher. Each child has a different relationship with language, and improving that relationship is impossible without first understanding it. English isn’t just a subject taught in school; it’s how we access the people and ideas around us. As a tutor, my goal is not only to prepare students for the tests and essays that will be used to evaluate them, but also to give them the skills they need to prosper as members of an English-speaking society." ...
